Paints, coatings, and inks to hold a leading position in the APAC de-aromatic solvents market

There has been substantial growth in the Asia Pacific paints and coatings market in the recent past. The Asia Pacific paints and coatings industry comprises decorative paints -- which are largely used for commercial and residential purposes -- and industrial paints, which are used across industries such as automotive, railways, and marine, among others. De-aromatic solvents are widely used in printing ink applications.

With steady growth in end use industries, the market for paints, coatings and inks in China, India, and South Korea is estimated to register swift growth. Moreover, with increasing international trade and government initiatives for developing the shipping industry in these countries, the demand for marine coatings and paints is anticipated to witness steady growth over the forecast period.

A majority of industrial paints and coatings consumed in the Asia Pacific region are solvent-based. Moreover, in case of paint and coating applications, relatively lower VOC content, less odor and relatively faster drying times are desirable properties. De-aromatic solvents are characterized by the aforementioned properties and as a result, consumption of de-aromatized solvents, especially of low flash point grade offerings in this application, is expected to grow rapidly.

The paints, coatings, and inks application segment in the APAC de-aromatic solvents market is projected to hold a value share of more than 45% by the end of 2025 – reflecting an increase of 130 basis points in 2025 over 2017. In terms of value, the paints, coatings, and inks segment is likely to reach a market valuation of US$ 416.4 Mn by the end of 2025, up from US$ 248.7 Mn in 2017 in the APAC de-aromatic solvents market, reflecting a CAGR of 6.7% in terms of value during the forecast period.
